DataTribe, the Fulton-based startup studio that seeks to develop cyber and data science startups, recently backed a pair of companies.

The investments followed a competition called the DataTribe Challenge, which out nationwide to seek out the “next big thing” earlier this year.

DataTribe looks to work with entrepreneurs on “over-the-horizon” technology, and located in Maryland to be close to the national labs and agencies in the area. Along with funding, the startup studio provides resources to help build a company.

Here’s info on the two companies which received backing:

  • Prevailion makes a platform to help organizations detect data that is compromised within a network or supply chain, and predict when a breach will occur. The Fulton-based company raised $1.7 million in seed funding from DataTribe. Founder Karim Hijazi previously founded data leak intelligence firm Unveillance, which was acquired by Mandiant/FireEye, and software firm Quantomic. The team includes former NSAers.

  • Inertial Sense is a startup working on tools for autonomous vehicle navigation of vehicles, drones and automobiles. The company’s technology is designed to offer a smaller, more precise offering than traditional GPS. Inertial Sense raised $2 million from DataTribe and Atomic Ventures.
